What do you have to do to deserve a silencing, defrocking, or at the very least, a rap on the head?!?! Personally, defrocking would be too good for this one. Can we just hit him with the trifecta of silencing, defrocking, AND excommunicating? I mean, this guy is advocating the murder of children. Oh, did I mention he’s a priest?!?!?!?!
We must be help Irish women with abortion costs, says rebel priest D’Arcy
By Allan Preston
Please. Rebel priest? More like evil priest. Rebel is a tad bit too classy for him.
An outspoken priest from Northern Ireland has said Irish women travelling to England for abortions should be helped with the costs of repatriation.
Fr Brian D’Arcy made the comments in the second part of an interview with Hot Press magazine published today.
Thank goodness I missed the first part of this interview. My gag reflex is already in full swing.
The Enniskillen cleric says he has had “countless conversations” with mothers faced with the sometimes heartbreaking decision of having to travel to England for a termination.
“I have sat with mothers, night after night after night. And I have always said to mothers, ‘Whatever you choose is the right choice’,” he said.
Awww…what a guy. Do you think he says that to the guy considering killing the 5-year-old? How about helping her out of a tough situation? Words are cheap, Fr. D’Arcy, and yours are bargain basement cheap.
“I always say that to mothers. My own view is that we should try to save all lives.”
I wonder if he ever considered using the words of the Church that abortion is EVIL? Not only that, it’s intrinsically evil, which means NO situation could ever make it not evil. What a fool! Actually, I’m reasonably sure that he knows exactly what he’s doing and it’s evil.
While insisting his views are still pro-life, Fr D’Arcy has backed the proposal to cover repatriation costs in abortion cases involving fatal foetal abnormalities, in order for the remains to be brought back to Ireland and buried if the woman has been forced to travel to Great Britain for an abortion.
Please! This helps a woman how? I’m sure there is more than one organization in the Catholic Church in England that would bury aborted babies.
“Whatever about the abortion, I have no problem at all having respect and love and care for the little infant whose life didn’t get a chance,” he said.
You just told a woman that allowing her child to be killed was a “right choice”, and now you think you are the one with respect and love? You’re part of the reason children are being killed, Father.
“So, whatever we should do to make the mother and father of that infant good, so much the better. I have no problem with that. In fact, I think it’s a good thing to do be compassionate and loving in that situation.”
I could repeat this a thousand times: YOU just told the mother killing her child is a “right choice.” The compassion and loving thing is NOT to do that, you moron!
The rebel priest believes it is inevitable that the Irish government will repeal the Eighth Amendment to the State’s constitution – originally passed by referendum in 1983 – which gives the unborn an equal right to life with mothers in all circumstances.
Yeah, with priests like you allowed to roam this planet without a good censure, I wouldn’t be at all too surprised if you are correct. This is the epitome of “The smoke of Satan.”
Fr D’Arcy has admitted his views may mean his days as a priest are numbered.
Please let this prophecy be fulfilled! I suppose I should be praying for a change of heart, but then I think of all of those women he tossed a rope to, the ends of which weren’t anchored to anything. He might as well have shot them and their children in the head. They asked for loaves and he gave them stones. Bravo, father!
The Passionist priest also said he supports gay couples adopting, would have no problem giving his blessing at same-sex marriages and has called on Pope Francis to allow divorced people to re-marry in the church.
No surprise there. I’m reasonably sure ANYONE could have guessed that.
In the first part of the Hot Press interview published earlier this month he claimed to know that a number of women committed suicide after suffering abuse at the hands of Ireland’s most notorious paedophile priest from Belfast, Brendan Smyth.
So, what you are saying is that priests who don’t follow Church teachings harm their flock? My gosh, man! Get a grip. Brendan Smyth wasn’t devout in any sense of the word. He was, well, a lot like you.
He also had harsh words for Cardinal Sean Brady, who was aware of children being abused by Belfast-born Fr Smyth, but chose not to go to the authorities.
“Priests molest, so feel free to kill your children!” Uh, hello! They have zero things in common, other than disobedient priests.
“The one thing you will always say about Sean Brady is that he’s a decent man,” he said.
“But he would probably know himself now that the system had him so brainwashed that he didn’t do the right thing. He was wrapped up in this whole secrecy thing.”
Again, has ZERO to do with you saying that it’s ever OK to kill a child. This is a very nice red-herring, father, but don’t you dare point to another’s sins to justify your own.
In the latest interview Fr D’Arcy states that half of his own congregation are in second marriages or relationships.
What does that say about their pastor, Father “Whatever you choose is the right choice” D’Arcy?
Having faced censure from the Vatican once before for his views, Fr D’Arcy speaks about risking his vocation. “I could get the second yellow card and be silenced forever,” he said.
Red card, Your Holiness! Let’s go straight for that one. To put it in other-than-soccer terminology, eject him from the game!
The interview also airs Fr D’Arcy’s opinions on the way women are treated in the Catholic Church, his experience of being stalked by a female admirer and of threats made to his life.
Oh, boo-hoo! Sorry! I have little sympathy for your hardships. Now, your immortal soul? I’m really sympathetic, because, from outward appearances, it’s looking mighty dicey. Children are dying, but please tell me about your stalkers and threats to your life.
